Max Richter to perform The Blue Notebooks in full at Londons Royal Albert Hall
Aug 20, 2014 12:52pm | Fact Magazine

Max Richter‘s stunning ’04 album The Blue Notebooks still stands as one of our favorite albums of the ’00s, and with good reason.

Richter’s sublime blend of electronic treatments and modern classical tropes has seen him go from strength to strength in the years that followed its release, with tracks being cherry picked for a number of major films including Will Ferrel’s Stranger than Fiction and Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island.

This year, he was tapped to provide music for HBO’s unusual slow-moving drama series The Leftovers, but Richter has found time to put together his Royal Albert Hall debut. On October 4, Richter will be performing The Blue Notebooks from beginning to end, and following it up with his acclaimed rework of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

Thurston Moore Announces New Album, The Best Day, Shares Title Track
Aug 20, 2014 12:50pm | CMJ

Photo by Phil Sharp

Thurston Moore, that gangly ex-face-of-Sonic Youth, has announced his first solo album in four years (the last was 2011’s Demolished Thoughts) and his first release since Sonic Youth’s less-than-amicable demise. It’s called The Best Day (so perhaps some of those bad feelings have subsided), and it will feature Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelly, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, and Nought guitarist James Sedwards.

With this phoenix-from-the-ashes news comes the album’s title track, a crisp bit of all-grown-up roots rock featuring that classically dry Moore drawl peppered with a winking confidence and a searingly psychedelic guitar romp. Listen to the track and check out the tracklist for The Best Day below.

Tracklist For The Best Day:
01. Speak To The Wild
02. Forevermore
03. Tape
04. The Best Day
05. Detonation
06. Vocabularies
07. Grace Lake
08. Germs Burn

White Lung's Mish Way & Waxhatchee's Katie Crutchfield play each other's songs in new acoustic session (watch)
Aug 20, 2014 12:44pm | Brooklyn Vegan

White Lung singer Mish Way and Waxahatchee singer Katie Crutchfield recently teamed up to film a collaborative Noisey Acoustics Session on a rooftop on the Lower East Side. They take on one track from each of their bands -- White Lung's "Wrong Star" and Waxahatchee's "Coast to Coast" -- with Katie on guitar and both of them singing. Waxahatchee's normally-full-band "Coast to Coast" unsurprisingly sounds great acoustic, and much more surprisingly, the fast and heavy "Wrong Star" does too. Watch the videos below.

Waxahatchee recently announced a solo tour where she'll be previewing music from her upcoming record. The tour hits NYC on November 10 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now.

White Lung are also touring, hitting NYC on September 3 at Glasslands with Mormon Crosses and Flykills (tickets), and also playing NY's Basilica Sound Scape. They've added more dates to their tour too. All are listed, with the videos, below.

Song : Wet : Move Me (TÂCHES Remix)
Aug 20, 2014 12:33pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Enigmatic producer TÂCHES masterfully reworks “Move Me”, the latest from Brooklyn-based three-piece Wet. He replaced the moodiness of the original and electrifies the song with club-ready beats and Balearic sounds. This version might be better than the already great original. Decide for yourself below.

Music, so the saying goes, is cyclical. Everything comes back around sooner or later. This isnt entirely true of course – imagine playing techno to Jimi Hendrix, for example – but for every wave of The New weve learned to expect numerous counter-currents of revivalism, revisionism and retro-pastiche. You can sit around and fret about what this means for culture, or, like Mike Paradinas, you can roll with it.

Paradinas music was about nostalgia even back in the early 90s. Inspired by 80s synth-pop (particularly the faded fantasias of OMD) and the TV themes of his childhood as much as Detroit techno, Paradinas brought heartstring-tugging melody to bear on UK hardcore, helping develop a hybrid music which would come to be known as IDM. Come the late 00s, a new generation of musicians were busily excavating many of the same influences to make music even more steeped in wistful remembrance. Paradinas, having ditched production a few years prior, took notice.

As one half of Heterotic, he issued a pair of joyously retro synth-pop albums not so far from the Chillwave set. A string of new productions under his solo µ-Ziq alias, meanwhile, were lively, colourful and packed with fresh ideas. Last years Chewed Corners LP took inspiration from a spread of contemporary artists (many of them signed to Paradinas own Planet Mu label), but in a way which was contiguous with the projects IDM past. Suddenly, those winsome melodies were...

Watch: Chris Christie argues with a constituent about his relationship with Bruce Springsteen
Aug 20, 2014 12:27pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Despite being polar opposites politically, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Bruce Springsteen share a common bond over music. Specifically, Christie, much like my mother, is a Springsteen super fan, who no doubt spends hours upon hours on Backstreets searching for that one bootleg recording from 1979 with that totally awesome version of “Badlands”. Say something bad about the Boss, and both Christie and my mother will throw a punch.

Yesterday, one of Christie’s constituents experienced this wrath firsthand when she so boldly questioned Christie’s relationship with Springsteen and whether the Republican Governor had been prohibited from playing the liberal musician’s music at his rallies. Then, she did something you never do to a Springsteen fan: accuse him of liking Bon Jovi.

I now present the 10 best quotes from Christie’s retort, ranked in order:

10. “I know him, and you’re wrong.”

9. “You’re absolutely wrong.”

8. “You’ve got no place else to go with this story.”

7. “I think I’ve heard pretty much what you have to say.”

6. “No, he never did that. No, you’re wrong about that. Bruce has never asked me to do that.”

5. “Listen, I know him. I know him, and you’re wrong.”

4. “Don’t put in Mr. Springsteen’s mout...

Mark Lanegan Band Sad Lover (Josh Homme Remix)
Aug 20, 2014 12:22pm | StereoGum

Mark Lanegan is having a really good year. He’s already helped out his buddy J Mascis by doing vocals on the new Sweet Apple album, and soon you’re gonna hear him tear up the new Earth album (yes, Earth will have vocals on their next album!). But he also put out No Bells On Sunday, a new release that had the great synth-and-motorik-driven single “Sad Lover.” Now Josh Homme has remixed “Sad Lover,” because odds are he likes Mark Lanegan as much, or more, than you do. The remix pulls out those heavy drums and replaces them with minimal, bubbling synths, which makes for a welcome addition. Listen to it below.


Song : Cyril Hahn : Open (ft. Ryan Ashley)
Aug 20, 2014 12:17pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Swiss producer Cyril Hahn will be dropping a new EP titled Voices very soon via PMR. While there is not an official date, he has shared a new song “Open” featuring vocals from London singer Ryan Ashley. The song overtakes you with a rush of emotion from longing to appreciation for those closest to you. It is a superb slice of electronic pop. The song has looking forward to what is to come from this new EP. Stream below.

Why we left Nada Surf off our list of underrated '90s bands
Aug 20, 2014 12:16pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Nada Surf at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Eric M. Townsend)

Last week we posted "9 of the best '90s bands you didn't think were the best '90s bands and the awesome stuff they're doing now," and encouraged you guys to leave comments of who you think we should have included and who we should have left off. There are so many more than 9 bands who could've fit on that list, and we loved everyone's suggestions. A few of them were bands we strongly considered but left off the list for one reason or another. That includes Failure (whose reunion we covered a bunch), Local H (who we also cover a lot), Spacehog, and the band who was suggested the most: Nada Surf. Nada Surf is actually the band that most likely would have been our tenth pick, had we included ten picks, but we decided to leave them off. Here's why.

Nada Surf come very close to fitting the bill. They had a fluke hit ("Popular") off their major label debut, High/Low (1996), an album otherwise filled with overlooked gems like the Thurston Moore-esque "Sleep" and the Pavement-esque "Treehouse." Failure to produce another hit caused their label, Elektra, to drop them. The unsigned band then released 1998's The Proiximity Effect on their own label and eventually hooked up with indie label Barsuk Records (then home to Death Cab for Cutie, Kind of Like Spitting, etc) for 2002's Let Go. Since then, t...

Giveaway: Win Two Tickets To Basilica SoundScape 2014
Aug 20, 2014 12:06pm | CMJ

Our recent report on the Woodsist fest seemed a metaphor for the way this busy, busy summer music festival season seems to be catching up with everyone. The music’s still good, the sunsets still gorgeous, but the constant hutzpah needed to run around to all these things might be reaching that autumnal tamp-down. Then again, maybe it’s just the realization that there are only so many times you can see the Flaming Lips.

Fear not! The creatively curated, third annual Basilica SoundScape festival is coming to add an intriguing, unexpected program. It runs from September 12-14 in a reclaimed 1880s factory in Hudson, NY, called Basilica Hudson, run by Melissa Auf Der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins) and her husband, filmmaker Tony Stone. The booking (we are of the mind that the term “curate” has reached satuation) is provided by auf der Maur and Stone, plus Pitchfork Senior Editor Brandon Stosuy and Brian de Ran of Leg Up Management. Together they’ve concocted an interconnected program of music, literature and visual arts that they hope doesn’t fall into the usual summer fest parameters.

The psych-rock-leaning musical menu includes Michael Chapman, Julia Holter, Endless Boogie, Deafheaven, White Lung, Majical Cloudz, solo sets from members of bands you may or may not have heard of, Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire playing material from his upcoming solo album, and the Swans doing a planned two-hour set. There will be nume...

Song : TOPS : Outside
Aug 20, 2014 12:03pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

We are a day late on this one, but Montreal’s TOPS unloaded another absolute killer of a song “Outside”. It captures the real beauty that can come of heartbreak and that you don’t have to go over the top to make an epic song. Sometimes subtlety and restraint is just as effective, if not more. Stream below and find the previous song appearing their new LP, Picture You Staring, slated for September 2nd via Arbutus here.
